Evaluation of deficiencies in labeling of commercial probiotics.


Labels of 44 human or veterinary probiotics were scrutinized. Organisms were improperly identified in 9/21 (43%) human and 8/23 (35%) veterinary products. Contents of 5/20 (25%) human and 3/17 (18%) veterinary products were misspelled. In only 9 human and 2 veterinary products were the contents adequately identified.
